Rangers | Elvis Andrus out Thursday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 07:41:35 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus is out of the lineup Thursday, June 30, with SS Jurickson Profar hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Profar's playing time has dwindled of late, but his results haven't. He's 3-for-8 (.375) the last week, and he is hitting .347 in June. He's a solid midrange grab against Michael Pineda.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:02:31 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not starting Tuesday, June 28, against the New York Yankees. 2B Jurickson Profar will play first and bat eighth against Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland is out due to the matchup with a lefty pitcher, so sideline him for the evening if you can. The Rangers want to put Profar in the lineup more often so this is an encouraging sign. Profar has seven hits in his last seven games but doesn't play every day. He's reliable in DFS formats for the time being.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar will continue to play

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 14:20:33 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar has been out of the lineup eight times in the last 11 games, but manager Jeff Banister is not concerned about the lack of playing time for Profar. Profar will likely play first base against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Tuesday, June 28, and Banister said Profar will play "three or four" times a week. Profar entered the game Monday, June 27, hitting .429 (6-for-14) since moving to a part-time role.

Fantasy Tip: While Profar hasn't played as much of late, he continues to produce at the plate when called upon. His multiposition eligibility also continues to make him attractive for infield depth in deep mixed and AL-only affairs. Profar makes for a nice value pick if he does start against Sabathia in DFS tomorrow.

Rangers | Ian Desmond, Jurickson Profar out

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:58:36 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond and 2B Jurickson Profar are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday, June 22. OF Ryan Rua will start in center field and is batting sixth in the lineup. 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Mitch Moreland will start at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .310 with four home runs and 10 RBI this month and is a sleeper starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Moreland is hitting .316 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days and should have value in some daily fantasy leagues.

Reds | Anthony DeSclafani cruises to first win

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 21:59:47 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani allowed a two-run home run to Texas Rangers INF Jurickson Profar but little else on Tuesday, June 21. DeSclafani yielded five hits and a walk while striking out six over seven innings for his first victory since Sept. 12, 2015.

Fantasy Tip: This was easily the best of DeSclafani's three starts this season since coming off the disabled list due to oblique strain. The 26-year-old New Jersey native has a tidy 2.30 ERA so far, although his 1.66 WHIP suggests he is still rounding into form. DeSclafani doesn't figure to be a must-start anytime soon, but he should be able to hold his own a back-end starter in most mixed leagues.

Rangers | Rougned Odor sitting out

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 14:03:20 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Tuesday, June 21. 2B Jurickson Profar will start at second base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has at least one hit in each of his last five games and is hitting .350 in June. He should be a starting option in most leagues and will be valuable in daily fantasy leagues.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar sitting vs. Orioles

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 13:56:32 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has now started just one of the past five games, which isn't enough work to maintain fantasy value in the majority of seasonal leagues. However, he's 29-for-83 since being recalled with a .873 OPS. Hold onto Profar for now, and start him when he's in the lineup.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar delivers game-winner

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 14:18:11 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar came off the bench as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and ripped a go-ahead, two-out, two-run single up the middle against St. Louis Cardinals RP Matt Bowman in a win on Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Profar, who is hitting .349, did not start for the third time in four games as some of the Rangers' big bats have gotten healthy, but he is still churning out hits at about the same rate he was upon his promotion from the minors in late May. With Prince Fielder batting .200 at the moment, Texas might go back to giving Profar some starts at first in addition to using him as a super-utility player in order to give the rest of the infield a day off. For owners in most leagues, he's running too hot to sit right now.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar not playing

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 10:27:00 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Sunday, June 19, because the team does not have the designated hitter available.

Fantasy Tip: Profar will return to the lineup once the team starts playing in American League stadiums again. He should be avoided in all daily fantasy leagues but should be used in most leagues when he plays.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus, Bobby Wilson out Saturday

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 11:07:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, 1B Mitch Moreland and C Bobby Wilson are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Saturday, June 18. 1B/DH Prince Fielder will play first base and bat fifth, INF Jurickson Profar will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder is starting at first base because the game is taking place in a National League stadium, which means the DH is not in effect. Profar is batting .412 in 51 at-bats versus right-handed pitching this year and should be viewed as a viable option in all fantasy formats. Chirinos has four home runs and seven RBI in just 28 at-bats this year and makes an excellent value play in DFS.
